Petersburg Christian Church
Great Meadow, Warren County

When a leading revivalist (Mrs. Abigail Roberts) for the Christian Church was denied the pulpit of the Vienna Methodist church, a courtesy commonly extended to visiting preachers, several of her followers in the area decided it was time to build their own church. Which they did in 1858. The ground floor was used for services and the basement was used as a school. In the 1940s the building was converted into a residence.
